Subrosa – Mirror lyrics

I took the safe road, I took the easy road
It looked so safe and comforting
There wasn't any trouble as far as I could see.

Avoided the twisty road,
Avoided the unknown,
My daddy said that was the devil's way
And God don't work in mystery noways.

Though I keep on trying to believe that there's an end to all this pain
I just keep moving on, I can't stop to think too long, oh no.
Though I keep on trying to believe that there's a way to be set free
I just keep losin' hold of the things that once gave me relief.

Got married in the winter, gave birth in the summer
In five years' time I had five young ones
But there was something missing, there was something wrong.

One day my husband came back from town
Said honey, you better sit down
There's been another woman for all this time
She's my one true love, can't get her from my mind

Now I break my back from crack of dawn
It's midnight when I get home
There never seems to be enough to eat
And I listen to my children cry themselves to sleep.

Though I keep on trying to believe that there's an end to all this pain
I just keep moving on, I can't stop to think too long, oh no.
Though I keep on trying to believe that there's an end to all this pain
I just look in the mirror and I know I only have myself to blame.

I took the safe road, I took the easy road
But I learned there is no safety there
You gotta push against the current to get somewhere.
